The Hoot Hoots, Feel The Cosmos
Nov. 29, self-released
This quartet's EP is six tracks of joyous pop-rock, replete with analog synth, overdriven guitar, and a singer whose voice occasionally recalls James Mercer's before he started making adult-contemporary music. This is the rare local "power pop" band that actually can write pop songs.
Listen to single "Home" after the jump, and catch The Hoot Hoots at their EP release show, this Thursday at Barboza.
